Deputy Fedorov proposed to give Russian citizenship to everyone who speaks Russian since childhood

Deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, member of the Committee on Budget and Taxes Yevgeny Fedorov proposed to automatically grant Russian citizenship to Russian speakers. About this parliamentarian told in an interview with the radio station “Moscow speaking”.

“We need to replenish the population. It is necessary to include Russian historical mechanisms of identity, the so-called Russification. The essence of this mechanism is that any person who speaks Russian from birth is considered Russian and, accordingly, should automatically receive citizenship, ”Fyodorov said.

In his opinion, citizenship should be given to all people for whom the Russian language is native since childhood, without collecting additional documents.

Earlier it was reported that the head of the State Duma Committee on Information Policy, Alexander Khinshtein, proposed to speed up the process of resettlement to Russia for all compatriots. According to him, the round-the-clock center for receiving documents for participation in the state program for voluntary resettlement will begin work in May.
